Forming powerful waterfalls that flow from lake to lake, and the path of that powerful water ends in the Korana river. The tradition of serious tourism in this area has continued since 1861, and in our time the number of visitors would exceed 1,000,000 visitors. In terms of preserving wild nature, the Plitvice Lakes National Park has introduced an innovation in terms of online ticket purchases in order to better control and somehow limit the number of visitors and thereby reduce the human footprint on nature. The national park has connected all destinations with paths that are sometimes bridged by boats constructed especially for that purpose. Local renters of rooms and apartments as well as countless restaurants with wonderful gastronomic offers profit from the huge number of visitors. We recommend a visit at any time of the year, because due to the splendor of the colors, each time of the year can be experienced in a primal way in harmony with nature.

This entire area is still called the Devil’s Garden on some topographical maps. This name is linked to the legend of the origin of the Plitvice Lakes. According to that legend (one of the legends about the Black Queen), the Plitvice Lakes were formed after a long and severe drought and there was no trace of water. People, animals and even plants ran aground and died. Then the people turned to prayer, they prayed day and night. Their prayer was answered by the Black Queen, who appeared in a dazzling light and took pity on the people, and with a strong howl of wind and terrible thunder, she started rain that fell and fell until it filled the lakes to the top, which began to overflow from the heavy water. Plitvice Marathon, one of the oldest in Croatia, founded in 1981. Even today, it is one of the most popular marathons in Croatia.
